Confrontation in Teloloapan leaves an injured police officer.
Two people, in possession of weapons, ammunition, a grenade, tactical equipment and four vehicles, were secured yesterday in different actions, in the municipalities of Cocula and Teloloapan, as a result of an operation in which the State Police, the Mexican Army participated. and National Guard.
Guerrero lives in a state of perpetual war. Elements of the National Guard, State Police and Army of this region were attacked on Thursday by an armed group. A uniformed man has been wounded in the shooting.
The authorities confirmed that a confrontation between criminal groups led to the deployment of the armed forces, which upon arrival in the conflict zone were shot and wounded, and a member of the Ministry of Public Security was wounded.
The events occurred in Mextitlán, a municipality of Teloloapan , where alleged members of Los Tlacos and Guerreros Unidos were shot to death, for which residents of the community notified the authorities.
The spokesman of the Table for the Construction of Peace in the entity, Roberto Álvarez Heredia, indicated that the health status of the elements was stable , meanwhile the Sedena corporations and personnel remain at the scene to avoid more fighting.
Guerrero is a mosaic of regional conflicts. At least 40 armed groups – including community police – dispute the control of the entity. A document from the José María Morelos y Pavón Center for Human Rights reports that violence is registered in all communities in the state, but it is most strongly concentrated in Tierra Caliente and the highlands.
The municipalities hardest hit by organized crime are San Miguel Toltolapan, Ajuchitlán del Progreso, Teloloapan, Coyuca de Catalán and Zirándaro.
Several experts warn that there are two main reasons why drug traffickers attack indigenous communities. The first, according to sociologist Aguirre Rojas, is because they want to be in control of where the drugs are produced. The second refers to the fact that in most cases, criminal groups have direct collusion with the State, so the State will let them do whatever it takes.
Also, the residents of the state of Guerrero have warned that the perpetrators of violence are not only the traditional actors , ie narcos, but also paramilitaries, state forces and municipal police participate. For this reason, the community members have reactivated the self-defense system, the autodefenses.
